Tests

IGF-1 measured in the blood is the test of choice and will be raised in a patient with acromegaly.

An MRI scan of the pituitary will be carried out in patients with symptoms of acromegaly and a raised IGF-1. This is to identify thepresence of a tumour in the pituitary and to assess its size.
